The Periodic Table

14–16 August 2012, Cusco, Peru

The Third International Conference on the Periodic Table will be held from 14–16 August in Peru, at the Center of Conventions of the Provincial Municipality of Cusco. The conference is being sponsored by San Antonio Abad Tricentennial National University, the Global University of Cusco, the Chemical College of Peru—Cusco and Academy of Sciences of Cusco.

Why a third conference on the periodic table? There have been surprisingly few international conferences on the central icon of chemistry and indeed one of the most central icons in all of science—the Periodic Table. The first was held in 1969 in the Vatican as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Mendeleev’s first Periodic Table. Participants included such luminaries as the physicist John Wheeler. The proceedings were published in, Verde (ed), Atti del Convegno Mendeleeviano, Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Torino, Roma, 15-21 Settembre, 1969, Torino, Vincenzo Bona, 1971.

The second was held in Banff, Canada, in 2003. The proceedings were published as two books edited by Rouvray and King: The Periodic Table: Into the 21st Century, Research Studies Press, Baldock, England, 2004 and The Mathematics of the Periodic Table, Nova Science Publishers, New York, 2006.

The meeting in Cusco, Peru, will be the third such meeting. Articles will be published either as a book or as a special issue of the journal Foundations of Chemistry. The conference will be to honor the memory of Dr. Oswaldo Baca Mendoza (Cusco, 1908 - 1962), author of a remarkable study and mathematical interpretation of the Periodic System (1953).
